About the Society of Maritime Industries
The Society of Maritime Industries (SMI) is the voice of the UK’s maritime engineering and business sector promoting and supporting companies which design, build, refit and modernise ships, and supply equipment and services for all types of commercial and naval ships, ports and terminals infrastructure, digital technology, maritime defence and security, marine science and technology, maritime autonomous systems and marine renewable energy.
SMI provides a wide range of activities both internationally and in the UK for the benefit of the maritime engineering business community. The members’ interests are represented by our six councils which focus on the markets in marine science and technology, commercial marine including ship building, repair and equipment, maritime autonomous systems, digital technology, ports and terminals infrastructure and maritime defence and security including naval platforms, systems, security and safety.
Our activities follow our objectives of presenting members with business opportunities, assisting with research and innovation, lobbying government and NGOs to improve the business environment, facilitating network opportunities and providing marketing amongst other services.
